Our Sleep Study is a take home study which has the convenience of being able to be done in the privacy of your own home. As a Medicare-subsidised benefit, a GP referral is required and gap payment necessary.
When prescribed CPAP or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure we can’t overemphasise the importance of the right mask, the right fit, the right machine and the right ongoing support. That is why we offer trials for different masks and different machines to make sure you get the optimal benefit and comfort from your investment.
A trial lasts for 4-6 weeks and also lets you trial additional equipment, such as a humidifier, without the initial cost. The cost of the trial is $250 which needs to be paid before the first appointment. If you decide to purchase a machine after your trial, the $250 will be deducted from your purchase price or a discount from the RRP may be applied depending on current specials and/or promotions. If you decide not to purchase a machine, your deposit money will not be refunded and goes towards the cost of providing the trial.
Once you’ve purchased a CPAP machine from us, we provide ongoing FREE support and downloads of the CPAP machine data that allow us to help make sure you are getting the full benefit from your machine.
Some health insurance providers will cover a percentage of the cost of CPAP, so if you have private health insurance it is worth giving them a call as different health funds provide different levels of cover.
We also have CPAP masks and machines available for hire. Please contact the Good Price Pharmacy Warehouse Broken Hill for pricing and availability.
Good Price Pharmacy Warehouse are agents for Air Liquide Healthcare and we have 3 fully trained CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) consultants who are available on weekdays for appointments.
Our professional staff are able to help you with diagnosis of sleep apnea as well as options for treatment such as CPAP.
Early detection of your sleep apnoea means that it can be treated before it damages your health, relationship or work performance.
The end result of sleep apnea is that you may suffer from a lack of sleep and oxygen, and wake up exhausted. Your partner may also complain about your snoring. Some sleep apnea sufferers find themselves falling asleep at work or while driving.
There are three types of sleep apnoea:
Sleep apnoea (also known as sleep apnea) is a condition where the pharyngeal muscles in the back and sides of your throat relax so much when you sleep that your breathing is blocked for a few moments. When this happens, your brain notices a lack of oxygen in your blood, wakes you up just enough for your conscious mind to tense the muscles and take a breath. Then you fall into a deeper sleep again and the cycle continues – usually without you even noticing.
It is normal to stop breathing, wake a little, breath and fall into a deeper sleep again.
Everyone does it occasionally, however when it happens more than five times per hour, you have sleep apnea. In severe cases it can happen more than 30 times per hour.
Sleep apnea occurs in all age groups – including newborn babies – but is most common in people over 50 years old and people who are overweight. It is also more common in men than women. Other physical characteristics that may predispose you to sleep apnea are large tonsils, a small nose, some thyroid conditions and nasal congestion. Also, drinking alcohol or taking sedatives or sleeping pills before sleep can relax your throat and make your sleep apnea worse.
Sleep apnoea has a range of symptoms. Consult your doctor if you experience more than two or three of these symptoms:
People who suffer from sleep apnoea often suffer from other conditions associated with, and possible caused by, sleep apnoea. By treating your sleep apnoea, you may also be able to reduce the severity of, or risk of suffering from:
